Clockwork Princess if the final book in The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare. It released in 2013 and I bought it immediately, only to let it sit on my book shelf until I was ready for it. Fast forward to this month and I finally was in the mood to return to the books that…

Hey folks. I am still playing catch-up from my writing project last month. Frankly, I should have had this post out six weeks ago, but I didn’t, so you get to help me now that we are actually IN 2016. Hoorah! I’m combining the last two categories because, well…I can. So there. * winks *…

Hello folks. It’s that time of the year, the time when I set a standard for my reading…and, as a result, begin pushing the boulder up the hill. So, here’s the boulder for the year. 1. Read 130 books – Which sounds like a lot, but it’s not the best I have done. In the last…

Once again…Awwww…Mauling. Sadface. All, it has happened. I have written another “secret” writing project. This is relative now, as everyone knows this happens in December but, you know, precedent and all. It’s still officially a “secret” so long as I say it is.

Hello everyone. I live! I swear I live. I have been knee-deep in the December writing project and co-mingling in Holiday Retail Hell (caps are important in that statement) (it’s not really that hellish). So, the reading and blogging has been back-burnered for a bit. However, the books are still flooding in, and here they…

I had only just learned about Richelle Mead’s newest series when a shiny, gorgeous ARC showed up at work. Ever delighted by her books and needing a new read, I turned to it immediately. Mead is always a good time for me, her ability to build a world and craft an interesting mythos entices me like…

Emery Lord is fast becoming one of my favourite contemporary writers of the YA market. Her books are insightful and full of heart. With this, her third standalone, Lord examines a sun-dappled summer in which townie Jonah Daniels and Seattle native Vivi Alexander fall madly for one another. The book also deals with the ups-and-downs…

Hello all. I’m still lining up my to-read list for 2016 and I have a few more polls to be voted upon. Since these categories all had a smaller amount of books in them I thought that I would group them together (rather than space them out). To that end – here you are. What…

So, clearly I have been ignoring the incoming pile in favour of opening packages and sitting the contents in a corner. This is what happens when I do that. Behold.

Marissa Meyer’s Winter was one of my most anticipated reads of the year. After acquiring an early copy from the publisher a few days pre-release, I dove in with abandon, excited to be back in the world that I love. Having just finished it, I wanted to get a review out before the euphoric feeling faded, and…

Teen Frankenstein by Chandler Baker is one of those books that I immediately wanted to read from its publishing announcement. This 2016  novel retells one of my favourite stories, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, but adds several twists to modernize it. Instead of setting it in period the book takes place in Hollow Pines, Texas, a place…

Life is sweet. Being a bookseller, sometimes,  is better. Behold: From my awesome publisher rep sent to our store to review a whole five days early (thanks M). Like, early enough to power through it before Tuesday, if I play my cards right. … So sweet….
